imagine an urban exploration game...

an empty city, abandoned because the sea rose to claim it. concrete skeletons half submerged. crows roosting in the high rise offices.

the player, the explorer, as a semiaquatic creature able to climb and dive

@chr Minecraft with the city world generator? lel

@chr I would play the shit outta this game

this post brought to you by this limebike

@chr gawd, the player is gonna get just hella chemical burns, huh,.... 🤔

@chr every time i see those stupid bikes or scooters scattered around the city I think of @aral’s quote

“Excuse Me, Your Unicorn Keeps Shitting In My Back Yard, Can He Please Not?”
but now literal 🦄 💩 instead of just online people farming services - this is both.


@chr could also be hybrid scuba/land gear that lets them go from underwater to on land seamlessly

@chr actually, Ghost in the Shell had a bit showing folks going into sea-inundated buildings to retrieve nuclear materials and other rare resources... 🤔

@chr have you read Starfish by Peter Watts? I think it could be a good backstory

@chr I have had this drean before for realz

@chr sunless sea/zubmarine but not victorian?

@chr it's not exactly that (no diving) but you might be interested in 'submerged' youtube.com/watch?v=mi8sXnrHa6

@chr have you ever seen the film Water World?

@loki no but i've heard about it

@chr it's an interesting movie, and it implements some of the concepts you just described.

It's worth a watch if you ask me.

@loki i'll add it to my watchlist!
